Shimomura Nakiri Knife MBL-102
Shimomura created this wonderfully designed Nakiri knife (vegetable knife) for those who are looking for a decent combination of reliability, sharpness, handyness and durability. The blade of this Shimomura Nakiri knife is forged, which is a process to create the perfect condition for sharping blades of traditional Japanese knives.
Part of this process is the ancient Japanese technique of the sword smith that has been passed on from generation to generation: The steel used for this knife is heated and then hammered to make a long and sharp blade. The metal structure is refined by hammering for a very long time, which creates a harder blade to last forever.
